Newsletter content pages should use "Edit" and instead of "Edit source"
Open, LowPublic


When you click the "Edit Source" button you are not editing the source, you are given a lovely UI to edit the details of the newsletter, so don't say "Edit source"

Cannot reproduce this - as look at this one here:

ah. I see it when the user is non-admin though.

Why can users that don't have any "newsletter-*" permissions even see the "View source" button? - It don't work for them. They will get a "Permission error" if trying to click there.

On a closer look, the patch and the task description seem to be about different issues - the patch removes the (disfunctional) View Source button, the task talks about Edit Source.

@Addshore do you know how to reproduce? I'd guess the user must have newsletter editing rights, and VisualEditor must be installed, and then its edit tab renaming functionality kicks in?

I would guess this has something to do with VE and the options to always show the edit source tab?
I don't remember now however and will not be in a position to try to reproduce for a few months.

Indeed the 'Edit source' tab comes from VE, we can easily change the text to 'Edit' using the hook SkinTemplateNavigation::Universal.

I noticed another bug with the tabs: View source is shown to a publisher without a 'newsletter-*' right instead of the Edit tab. The solution is to merge this patch which will sort who can edit a Newsletter page.
